“The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” impressed the Cinema Audio Society enough to shoulder into one of the five live action nominations for sound mixing the group awards annually. The group’s noms reflect an Academy Award nomination about 75 percent of the time.
Films competing against TH:AUJ are “Les Miserables,” “Lincoln,” “Skyfall” and “Zero Dark Thirty.” For a full story and list of nominations that include animated films and television, you can click right here.
TH:AUJ was mixed with new technology Dolby Atmos which dramatically increases the number of sound spots film technicians can place in the film. Thursday marks the announcement of Oscar nominations and the film has a chance to nab a spot for sound mixing and sound editing.
TheOneRing.net will host a party in Hollywood on Oscar night to celebrate film. See details right here.
